Witness the site of Napoleon Bonaparte's defeat at Waterloo Battlefield, which commemorates one of the world's most famous battles. In the center is the Lion Mount, where a proud lion sculpture watches over the hill's peak. Walk up to the top for a view of the entire battlefield. Enter the museum, where you'll find a panorama of the battle representing the soldiers from all sides facing off across the open space. Video presentations give you an overview of the history behind the Napoleonic Wars. Purchase your tickets on arrival and wear comfortable walking shoes for the walk up the hill.
